Reason I have only two children – Fashola  


The Minister of Power, Works, and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, said he and his wife, Abimbola, have only two children together.

The father-of-two made this disclosure at the second edition of the Babatunde Raji Fashola GABFEST held on Thursday in Lagos.

The former Lagos governor said his decision to have only two children was borne out of economic reason and not infertility.

He said, “When I was alone, all my money was my own. When Abimbola decided to marry me, she would just bring a bill. So in my ten Naira, my share was now five Naira. We are doing fifty-fifty. She was earning money and I never asked her what she was doing with her money.

“Then Ademola came and my share became one-third, then Olayinka came and I became 25 per cent, then I said ‘Madam, let’s stop’.

“So, we just agreed, no more, because the income wasn’t growing.”
